You’ve been partying with your friends in Apshalt, Berlin and suddenly a random stranger snaps a photo of you. Not only is it rude, it’s also deliberately invading your privacy even if you’re in a club with a lot of inebriated people. Taking photos with your camera phone involves a certain amount of discretion and of course, respect for other’s privacy. Some phones are even equipped with a camera sound option that you can’t turn off when taking photos so that people will instantly know you’re taking a snapshot of them. Places such as museums and art shows often prohibit photography.

Germany is known for the most prolific photographers. Photographer Helmut Newton is known for his high fashion sensual photographs and you can check out the Helmut Newton Museum which showcases his works and pays homage to his life and career. So before taking a snapshot with your trusty phone camera, here are some guidelines to observe so that you can avoid that future lawsuit. First off, if your camera lens has a cover, keep it closed. You don’t want others to think that you’re taking their photo. Point the lens preferably on the ground. Now, if you want to take photographs of strangers, ask for consent and do so politely. Also expect that they can decline on you taking their photo. The only time this is acceptable is when you’re the event photographer.
